How to Publish Your Book o-n Amazon for $99

Quite a while before, on a desk-top far, far away...

That has not imagined not only writing their very own guide, but seeing it in print on, having a replica for their shelf, getting 'five copies for my mother'?

Well, now you can do-it for some cybernetic elbow grease and a $99 price. These pages will show you how I did it, and chances are you may do it too. Dig up further on by browsing our stirring paper. I have been studying for many years about Print On Demand, the great new techology where you put in PDF files on one end (One for the address, one for the insides) and an attractive, perfect-bound, bookstore-quality book arrives the other. I have even seen the technology in motion at an document imaging tradeshow (that's my career, from the way.)

I've known other folks who have used Print On Demand (POD) as a means to self-publish, including my very own father. Visiting seemingly provides tips you can give to your mom. My problem with that is I've no place in my own garage for books, I do not need to get involved in the act of marketing and delivery books, handling results, and so forth.

Suddenly, while Googling anything this morning, I came upon some wonderful Goo. Be taught more on our affiliated essay by visiting Amazon, the internet bookstore, has consumed a POD author called BookSurge, making it another Amazon team. Now I could distribute it to Amazon/BookSurge, simply take my book project, pay a fee, and VOILA! my book is o-n Amazon for everybody to buy. It ships within 48 hours, BookSurge pays me a 25% royalty within 60-days, I will also get five copies for my mother in a discount!

I sent BookSurge and was assigned an account manager, who I'll call Joseph (because his name is Joseph). I asked concerning the details of publishing a book. For $599 I could obtain the hand-holding, send us your manuscript version of the publishing, or if I was bold, courageous, and could format my own PDFs, for $99 I could use the Author's Express program to publish my book projects.

$99 felt like the way to go, since my book development project was made to be the precursor of several more games.

I ran all over the site, downloading example PDFs, submission guidelines, and other things I could find. Your website recomends using Adobe -something or another- for text formating, and Adobe Acrobat 6 (not 7!) for PDF creation.

I decided in the git-go that Microsoft Word and PDF Factory Pro will have to benefit me, because that's what I had on my desktop, and I do not need to spend months learning another desktop publishing software, although I am sure it is a great one.

Besides, I was already considering writing this page, and I wanted to come back up with a procedure most anybody could be comfortable with.

The sole shortcut I got is that my address is plain text, without pictures onto it. I realized my first book is going to sell mostly if not entirely o-n Amazon, and a pretty cover is not that essential there. Whatever the case, I will always return and improve my model (The excess payment for resubmitting either the inner or the address is $50, when the book is published.)
